How exactly do you octo proof an in tank power head ? :/ I'm a little stumped on this one. I dont mind him moving it around much, but I dont want the little guy to get sucked into the propeller and hurt.

One way is to cover the inflow and outflow tubes with some sort of plastic mesh netting - you can use cable ties to secure it. Don't make it a big bag - your small octo might get caught in the folds.

I've used the netting that some smaller packages of veggies come in - clean it and thoroughly rinse it, then cut to the size you need.

One of my powerheads has one of those aquaclear filter attachments on it... I'm thinking I might be able to get away with just silliconing the connection so he wont be able to jerk it lose.

The other powerhead is quite large and I'm wondering if I covered it with Bridal Netting, would that do the trick or is it not fine enough netting? (its for a new baby octo from octopets btw :) )
